    I'm planning to get a P4 2.6 and plan to over clock to 3+. I was wondering if a 350w power supply would be enough to do this since i'll save some money using the PSU that comes with my case. thanks in advance.

    It only states up to DDR-400...so it doesnt look like it. But I would get some low latency dual channel DDR-400 anyway...:cheers:

    any board that can have the fsb raised can handle a higher speed ram then "labled"

    most mobos can handle pc2100, 2700, and "up to" 3200

    but that doesn't mean you can't get it to work with pc4200. (unless the board is crappy and can't handle FSBs that high)

    remember the specs of mobos are written for people that run their computer stock

    Not without raising the speed of everything on the board, therefor causing instabilites.

    And also, it woud be better to have some low-latency PC 3200 and overclock it a little bit, rather then have PC-4200 and be creating a bottle-neck and limit it by the FSB...:cheers:

    I have a 2.4C runnin' in a P4P800 Deluxe with XMS3500 (old version which is timed at 2-2-2-6) and the CPU/memory ratio at 5:4 for a FSB of 270MHz (memory speed 216MHz) givin' a total speed of 3.24GHz plus the AGP/PCI buses are locked at there spec'd speeds so go figure that one but I can do better once I get rid of this stock Intel HSF.
